389 Nina's Capelet
This capelet has maximum practicality and elegance with minimum effort. The light, airy, brushed alpaca makes this garment incredibly soft and weightless – an ideal thing to roll up in a corner of your bag and always carry with you for those times when you don’t know how many layers you might need in your day.
Perfect as a light, extra layer in winter, when the lofty alpaca will trap warmth under your coat. Perfect for spring and autumn, when temperatures vary unpredictably and you need a layer you can put on or take off and stow in a small space in your bag. Perfect for summer, when going in and out of air-conditioning has the same effect. And perfect for looking stylish in any season.
It takes 4 skeins of Drops Brushed Alpaca (77% alpaca/33% silk), plus 1 spool of Kremke Stellaris (47% viscose, 41% polyester, 12% metal). The capelet is worked with one strand of Brushed Alpaca held together with a thread of Stellaris throughout.
